Microsoft Edge is filled with many Internet Explorer’s security holes says researcher
Microsoft presented Edge as its latest hack proof and secure browser with Windows 10. It was supposed to take on Google’s Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox as the most secure browser of them all. This has not happened yet and Infoworld journalist and researcher, Woody Leonhard says that Microsoft Edge has inherited many of old Internet Explorer security holes.
Back in May, Microsoft Edge senior program manager Crispin Cowan made some bold predictions in the blog post Microsoft Edge: Building a safer browser. In the blog, Cowan assured us that:
With Microsoft Edge, we want to fundamentally improve security over existing browsers and enable users to confidently experience the web from Windows. We have designed Microsoft Edge to defend users from increasingly sophisticated and prevalent attacks.
The article goes on at length to describe how Edge will be better than the bad, old IE, “including industry-leading sandboxing, compiler, and memory management techniques developed in close partnership with Windows.”
